George Hendry's Death
A telegraphic message received by
Mr. George Hendry, of this Town, on Sunday morning conveyed the startling and distressing intelligence that his son, George Hendry, had been killed on Saturday night at Harvey Lake.

Mr. S. Watts, a coronor for the County of York, also received a dispatch asking him to go to McAdam and hold an inquest. It so happened that the Presque Isle Express, detained by the storm on Saturday, reached Woodstock early in the afternoon on Sunday and
in that train Mr. Hendry, the undertaker, with a casket, and Mr. Watts proceeded to McAdam where the remains having arrived an inquest was held and the facts, on evidence, disclosed as follows:-

Mr. Hendry, aged 23 years, was a fireman on the St. John Section of the C. P. R., and on Saturday evening was, acting in that capacity on one of two engines, ordered out with a snow special from McAdam Junction; the driver was E. Haddock and conductor James Wright. The train consisted of snowplow, two engines and caboose. At Harvey Lake, from some unknown cause, the snowplow and leading engine with cab and tender, the train running at about 12 miles an hour, left the irons and went over the embankment, about 20 feet high, on and through the ice into the lake, the engine and greater portion of the cab being submerged. A hole was broken into the tank, by the collision, from which the water rushed into the cab and the coal from the tender also poured into it.

The driver escaped through the window of the cab onto the the ice,
Hendry being, as it appeared, carried down into the water of the lake under the coal in the cab. Efforts were at once made to find the missing man. Mr. G. A. Haggerty was, as soon as possible at the scene of the accident with a wrecking train, but it was found impossible to secure the body until the morning, (Sunday), when the cab was burned, the ice melted and on reaching down his arms length into the water, one of the men was able to grasp Hendry's hand. It then required the united strength of two men, Michael Ward and John Ganong, to draw the body , which seemed to be in a crouching position, from under the coal which was upon it. It was found that the left arm was broken above the elbow and one arm and leg badly scalded.

The coronor's jury, J. W. Hoyt, J. W. Green, E. W. Brownell, M. H. Goodspeed, G. T. Baskin, W. H. Densmore and J. H. McLeod, found a verdict in accordance with the facts, as they appeared on evidence, exonerating the Ry. Co. and employees from blame.

The remains of young Hendry were placed in a casket by the undertaker, Francis Kelly, in the office of G. W. Haggerty who showed every possible attention, and then brought to Woodstock on Monday morning on a special.

The funeral, largely attended, took place on Tuesday. Rev. Mr. Baker of the Albert St. Baptist Church officiated. Woodstock Lodge L. O. L. attended the funeral in a body, and also a delegation of Foresters from McAdam. The parents and sisters of the deceased have the public sympathy in this sad bereavement, by which a promising and bright young man, only 23 years old, highly esteemed by those who knew him, met his untimely end.

Our neighborhood was the scene of a very sad calamity this morning, Saturday the 20th, involving loss of life.
Mrs. Harvey Fisher, whose husband was absent in the lumber woods left her house about 10 o'clock to do up her barn work, her two children, aged one and three years respectively, remaining in the house.
Shortly afterwards from some cause, to your correspondent unknown, the house took fire.
Mrs. Fisher heard an alarm and made for her dwelling, reaching the door, only to be driven back by the flames. Her efforts to rescue her children were alas unavailing.
In a brief period the dwelling was in ashes, and the remains of the little ones buried beneath the debris. The heart broken mother's friends in West Glassville were immediately notified of the mournful dispersation, by-Robinson, Alexander Brown and Frank Hume harnessed up and started for Burnthill to apriee the bereaved father of his loss.

Mr. G. S. Wiggins met with a painful accident and had a most wonderful escape from a shocking death, Monday morning. While working in the griss mill, his clothing was caught in a rapidly revolving laying shaft, and he was carried round with it. The shaft was about three feet from the floor, so that only his feet would strike at each revolution. He supposes he must have turned with the wheel at least a hundred times, before he lost consciousness. When he came to himself he was lying on the floor under the shaft, with his coat, vest and under clothing completely torn from his body, by these giving way he had fallen free from his dangerous position. Dr. Atkinson was summoned, but upon examination found that with the exception of some very severe bruises on his feet, shoulder and head no injury had been sustained.

Two deaths occurred quite suddenly in Wicklow lately.
Mr. Joseph Giberson died last Friday, and was buried on Sunday. He was about 63 years old and had been in poor health for some time.

Fatal Accident
A sad accident occurred on Monday evening by which one of our old, well known and highly respected citizens,
Mr. Robert Hume, aged 94 years, lost his life. Mr. Hume was moving about the house in the dark when in some way he fell down the entire length of the stairs. His daughter was aroused by the noise of the fall and proceeding to discover the cause found her father lying at the foot of the stairs in an unconscious condition. Help was soon at hand, the sufferer placed on a bed and Dr. Sprague called.

His sons, George and Bedford were sent for, and everything done to alleviate the patient's suffering and prolong life, but in vain, and after lingering till Wednesday evening death came to the release of the sufferer.

In Memoriam
The sudden and unexpected
death of Mrs. Dr. T. S. Pitt, of Boston, better known here as Miss Sadie Shaw, will be sad news for her many friends in this part of the county.
Mrs. Pitt was born in Middle Simonds some 35 years ago. When quite young she learned dressmaking, and after working at it here for several years, she went to Boston, and there continued working at dressmaking, occupying an important position in one of Boston's largest dressmaking establishments.
Three years ago she married Dr. T. S. Pitt.
Immediately after her marriage she went west with her husband where they remained for a year, after which they returned to Boston and occupied a handsome residence in Boyleston, a suburb of Boston.
The cause of Mrs. Pitt's death was a tumor of the stomach which had been growing on her side for the past year, but so mindful was she of others feelings her trouble was known but to a few of her friends. About two weeks ago in consultation with specialists, they advised her as her only hope to live any time was to submit to an operation. With the same brave spirit with which she faced the battle of life, she faced the painful ordeal of a surgical operation from the shock of which she never rallied, dying Wednesday evening Feb. 8, two days after the operation.
Funeral services were held at her home in Boston, Friday afternoon, after which
her body was taken to the train that was to bear her to her old home and friends in Woodstock and Simonds. The body arrived in Woodstock at one o'clock Saturday, accompanied by her husband Dr. Pitt, and her two sisters and brother.
The remains were taken to her mother's house on Water St. where they were viewed by her many friends of Woodstock. Sunday a. m. she was taken to Simonds, where at 12 o'clock the funeral services took place, Rev. D. D. Page of the Advent Church, conducting them. She was buried in the old Simonds burying ground beside her father and two sisters.
Much sympathy is felt for the bereived mother, this making the third daughter brought home to her from the States to look upon for the last time.

The address, which was read by Mr. Murray, of St. Jovite, concluded by expressing the hope that Mr. Garden's wife and family, as well as himself, would be blessed with a long and happy life.

Early on Sunday morning last, fire was discovered in the large Brick Building, corner of Main and Connell Streets, and before the Steam Fire Engine could be got ready for work, this fine building was all in a blaze.
The wooden building belonging to McDonough, and John Cole's brick building, on Connell Street were totally consumed. Brown's building on the corner was occupied by F. T. Bridges, Jeweller, Robt. Smith, Hardware, and Mr. Tompkins Grocer. The owner had $4,000 insurance on the building, Mr. Smith had $3,000 on on his stock. Bridges, and Tomkins, had no insurance. Mr. Cole and Mr. McDonough were partially insured.
The necessity for frequent trial of the Steam Fire Engine was here apparent.

At an early hour Thursday morning fire broke out in an out building attached to the
Queen Hotel. The firemen were prompt in responding to the alarm and soon succeeded in subduing the flames and confining it, as was supposed, to the locality where it started, but at a later hour fire was discovered in the main building of the Queen and before the firemen got control of the flames the entire roof and upper portion of the ell and main building were destroyed, while it was perfectly flooded with water so that the damage to the interior of the building and the furniture was disastrous. Mr. Watson, the owner, has on his property insurance of $2,000 in the Imperial, Miss Allan local agent, and $1000 in the North British and Mercantile, J. N. W. Winslow agent.

After the first fire had been quenched, as supposed, the firemen were handsomely regaled at supper by Mr. Boyer, but they had scarcely finished when the last alarm again called them to duty.

A Busy Establishment
We find the following in a late number of the Daily World, plublished at Victoria, Brithish Columbia.
Latson and Burpee are both New Brunswickers, the former being from Chatham, and the other is F. W. Burpee, son of Mr. John Burpee this town.

Messrs. Latson & Burpee's premises, at No. 150 Water street, are at present a veritable hive of industry, and over time has to be resorted to in order to keep up with the many orders in hand. This firm became established here at the above premises in October last,
they being patentees and manufacturers of the Latson & Burpee can wiper, while special attention is given to cannery work, especially as regards die making. They have a die of their own invention and manufacture, which has many features to recommend it, and which has been favorably received by those practically interested in the cannery business. In one die there are two centre pieces, of single parts, thus doing away with the old custom of having two dies. Their can-wiping machine is an exceedingly clever device and must come into service in every modern cannery, for whereas the old machines were only capable of handling 400 or 500 cases a da?, by this firm's invention, as high as 2,000 cas?s can be put through in a day, this having been actually done in one of Alex. Ewen's canneries. These machines have been installed in many canneries on the Fraser and up North, while orders are in hand for 10 more. Six machines have just been completed. They are adjustable to wipe and clean cans of any size, and are capable of being regulated to different speeds of operation. The works are most thoroughly equipped in every way, having their own motive power, in an Elison 12 horsepower electric motor, with the lastest and most approved styles of lathes, planers, etc.

On it were eight pieces of scantling, 40 bushels of buckwheat, 6 men, 2 barrels of flour and 20 gallons of molasses. This load passed over Michael's prostrate form and to make use of his own realistic description,
" it tore all the ribs off my back bone, shoved one rib through my bowels, and one rib ain't knit yet." It is wonderful what some men can pass through and live.

She was attended by her sister, Miss Janet Gibson, who wore a pale blue dress of crepe de chene, and Miss Nellie McElroy, dressed in pale pink of the same material. Both costumes were exceedingly becoming. Little Lizzie Anderson acted as maid of honor and Master Harry Manaton as page. Willie Jarvis of London, Ont., and Wallace Gibson, brother of the bride, supported the groom. Rev. Mr. Manaton, with the assistance of Rev. Mr. McKay, tied the knot. The church was beautifully decorated. Mrs. C. H. Manaton presided at the organ. After the ceremony the wedding party, with relations and some immediate friends, repaired to Mr. Gibson's residence where a reception was held. Mr. and Mrs. Arscott left on the night train for Montreal, where they spend a few days and then proceed to their future home in London, Ont.

All the papers have given THE DISPATCH a hearty welcome. This from the Sussex Record :
"We welcome to our exchange list Woodstock's new eight-page weekly, The Dispatch. The new venture is a healthy and vigorous youngster and will, we are inclined to think, make its neighbors hustle. It has a good advertising patronage and a splendid county to back it."

Dr. Hand lives on Chapel St., next to the Methodist church. On Wednesday last the Methodist quarterly meeting was in session in Woodstock and a large number of Methodist clergymen and laymen were in town. On Wednesday evening Dr. Hand's clothes line was rifled. Tho unjust inference that has been drawn from these coincidential facts by some evil minded people is worthy of every condemnation.
